How did you meet? We met our Jr. year of high school...he was in my friends class at the vocational school we went to half days
What do you find most attractive about him? I dont know if I can pick one thing...when he does his hair he looks SO good LOL....he's strong...he's outgoing....I love his new love for Christ.
What kind of daddy is he? He's a great daddy...sometimes I have to remind him that he's not one of them lol..he gets a little rough in their wrestling so I have to watch that lol...only cause i'm over cautious probably....but anyway...he's a great daddy....he spends as much time as he can and would do anything to see them happy.

We aren't to give a baby milk, berries, or peanut butter. We are to introduce new foods one at a time. But it's OK to inject several viruses, bacteria, aluminum, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol, animal serum, mercury, squalene and more into an 8 week old? I don't think so.
In order to be healthy it is an unfortunate fact that people must be allowed the opportunity to be ill. I trust my body and those of my children to work correctly against the relatively benign diseases they vax for, and do not trust the ingredients in the vaccinations.
Our choice to not vax isn't based in ignorance, poverty, conspiracy theory and rumor. It's research, common sense, fact and evidence based..something the medical community has largely forgot about.

What does he do? Evan is a transport truck mechanic

How did you meet? We met at a bar. I went out with a male friend that night because both of our plans were canceled. When I went to the washroom, DF came up to me as soon as I walked out (he said he was waiting to get me alone). He offered to buy me a drink, and we went on our first official date the next week and we've been together ever since.

What do you find most attractive about him? Everything, lol. Well initially what drew me to him was his height. He's 6'5'' and I LOVE tall guys. I'm tall myself so always had problems finding a guy taller than me. I also love his eyes. He is very hard working, was a licensed mechanic at 21. He works so hard for us so I can stay at home with the kids. He is a wonderful man and I love him very much. He compliments my personally, he's very quiet, reserved, witty and patient. I'm very outgoing, big personality so he keeps me grounded.

What kind of daddy is he? Evan is a wonderful father. He stepped up with Phoenix (who is from a previous relationship) and took her on as his own. He is very calm parent and is very AP. He has been a blessing with Lincoln. They love each other so much. Evan does so much for the kids, and is ALWAYS helping, I don't have to ask ever. He changes 90% of Lincoln's diapers, rocks Lincoln to sleep if he won't go to sleep on his own. I am so blessed to have him as a spouse and the father to my children. I couldn't have asked for someone better.

DH is a marketing and sales manager, which I think is great as he usually gets to work from home a couple of days a week (obviously he's working and can't help me out with DS or anything, but it's just nice to have the company).

I'm placing my bets now on having the most geeky how-we-met story. We met online, in a computer game. More specifically, a massive multiplayer online roleplaying game. You've possibly heard of World of Warcraft - well, it wasn't that game, but similar to it.

Since we met online, I suppose it was initially a "meeting of the minds". Neither of us knew what the other one looked like! We shared a sense of humour and had a mutual respect for one another. We didn't meet in "real life" until over a year later, and I breathed a big sigh of relief when I found him to be easy on the eye! I guess he must have done too lol, since now we're married.

DH is a great father to Ben. Ben absolutely loves him; he gets so excited when he hears the front door opening! He squirms around and starts squealing, "dadadada"! DH loves football and can't wait until Ben is old enough to kick a ball around at the park with him lol.

What does he do? he is a Ph.D. chemist though right now he's doing statistical work

How did you meet? an online dating site, I knew about a month after dating him that it would be a long term thing

What do you find most attractive about him? his blue eyes and intellect

What kind of daddy is he? He is a great daddy to Tessa. She is his little princess and has him wrapped around his finger. DH will give in to Tessa even when I'm saying, "It's really time for bed now." He'll always read her 1 more story or 3. DH even feels more strongly than I do about cosleeping. Every time I broach the subject of transitioning DD to her own room, he makes sure I don't mean just yet.

Here's a pic of DH with Tessa this spring:

What does he do? DH is in the army.


How did you meet? We met a club.

What do you find most attractive about him? His passion for everything. He loves the outdoors and photography and I love how he can be dead tired but still want to get up at 5 in the morning to catch the perfect sunrise. He is very spontaneous. (he is also HAWT )

What kind of daddy is he? Amazing. When he and I first started dating he was a better father to my children than their dad. He loves them like his own and I was so happy when we decided to have Bella.

What does he do? He's a website engineer. Basically someone designs a website and takes that design to him, and he makes it look like their design and gets it to do what they need it to do.

How did you meet? A dance workshop. We're both really into old partners dances like charleston and lindy hop (swing dance) and there's this dance called the Balboa. There's a HUGE workshop in Cleveland every year where dancers from all over the world come to learn this dance from the masters. Well, I had an empty apartment and Daryl needed a place to crash so I offered my couch to him. We didn't start dating for over five years later.

What do you find most attractive about him? He's nerdy, and we hold a lot of the same basic principles.... it's hard to find someone who holds the same basic principles as me, because I can be pretty out there. His even temper also really appealed to me. I was coming from an abusive relationship when I started dating DH. I told him that it might take a long time for me to trust someone again, but when I got to know him and how slow he is to anger, and how rational he is with his emotions, I can't even describe how my eyes were opened.

What kind of daddy is he? Sometimes he can be pretty passive, and I do most of the parenting, but this is also because we agree on most things. I don't have to ask him how he feels about me declining certain vaccines or homeschooling etc because I know we agree on these things and most other things that are similar. We work really well as a team, I think that right now he just isn't sure what to do with a kid Jonah's age. He is great with my nephew, so I have the feeling that when Jonah gets a little bit bigger and can play games etc, DH will be more hands on.

Here's my favorite picture of them in their vintage style caps, Jonah was 3 months here


and another favorite, this was taken the beginning of this month

What does he do? He's a sous chef at a fine dining restaurant.

How did you meet? Through my mom actually, lol. She worked with his ex-girlfriend for a few months. We met while we were both in other relationships, and when they both ended a couple years later, we started dating.

What do you find most attractive about him? His eyes and his personality.

What kind of daddy is he? He's a great daddy! He's the more passive parent, and lets things go a little easier then I can.

How did you meet? We MET at a party when i was 19.. but id had a secret crush on him since i was 15. He didnt know i existed though..

What do you find most attractive about him? He is Honest, Loyal, Hardworking, Godly, loves to laugh, always goofing off.. Kinda shy around new people, which is totally adorable !!!

What kind of daddy is he? He is the sort of guy who was ready for kids the minute we started dating... he knew he wanted to marry me, he knew he wanted kids, and was ready whenever i was...

I love my man!

What does he do? Currently enrolling in school


How did you meet? We were doing LARP (Live Action Role Play) and he was helping with character creation (thanks to his best friend who set him up to meet me without us knowing lol) yeah, we're geeks too

What do you find most attractive about him? Rational, calm, loving, affectionate, diplomatic, fair, tall (6'5" also) It's hard to pick!

What kind of daddy is he? Absolutely amazing! He took on my 3 kids from my previous marriage and loves them as his own. Their dad decided not to be part of their lives anymore and DH stepped into the role of dad with them. Now that we have a baby together (his first), he is very involved and loving. He is PERFECT!

What does he do? Jed works at the public library, at the circulation desk. He has his degree in music education, and was gonna teach high school choir until he realized he couldn't stand the public school system in our state.

How did you meet? We've known each other since middle school I've had a crush on him since I was 13. We were casual friends for years, best friends after high school, and somehow best friends turned into something more wonderful than I could have imagined. We've been married a little over two years.

What do you find most attractive about him? His humor, his smile, his deep voice. He's such a loving and kind person, even though he's got a sharp wit and can be a bit of a smart ***** at times

What kind of daddy is he? Wonderful! The first 6 months were the hardest, I think. He had a hard time when Toby would just cry for "no reason" and he couldn't figure out how to help him. It didn't help that Toby is a major booby-baby, and usually he only wanted me. From 4 months on, Jed was the morning parent, since I left for work at 5:30. Jed is NOT a morning person, so getting up at 6 with a screaming infant every morning...well, he survived it! But he loves Toby with every fiber of his being, and he loves to play with him and cuddle him. He'll change his diaper, feed him..and yesterday he said to me "I would do anything in the world to hear the sound of this baby's laugh.."

This is an old pic of them, but I just love it...



The two of them playing more recently...

What does he do? His title is Cash Handling Specialist. He works for an insurance company.
How did you meet? Online. We eloped after 3 months of knowing eachother. We have been married for 8 yrs.
What do you find most attractive about him? I'm not sure how to answer this. I think what I first liked about him was that he was shy and had a big heart.
What kind of daddy is he? He is a good daddy. He watched Oliver two days per week before he got his new job and he was hands on. He loves to wear Oliver while cleaning the house. What else can I ask for? lol.. If I'm home he does tend to let me tend to all of Oliver's needs. He is better at playing with him than I am. He is more creative than me with play time.

What does he do? He works for a telemarketing company. (incoming calls not the annoying outgoing ones) and is about to go back to school for engineering.

How did you meet? I was in 4th grade, he was in 5th, I accidentally punched him and broke his nose on the playground. We met back up when I was a senior because I needed help with partner stunts for my college cheer tryouts. He convinced me to stay and cheer at the junior college here, one thing led to another and 10 months later we had Addi.

What do you find most attractive about him? His personality. And how devout he is to his family

What kind of daddy is he? Very hands-on. Although he isnt as AP as me, but he is working on it. He is definately a lot rougher with her than I am but she loves it. She is a daddies girl through and through.
